Set course standards for a freshman transition class which should include: personal/social development and skill building, educational achievement plans, career and life skills and planning. The benefits of this program will reduce dropout rates, increase maturity in post-secondary programs, increase number in Tech Prep programs and provide skills to navigate through life and work.
